I found this part of Jawahar Kala Kendra (JKK) newly painted. This is the Area at the front entrance. 

I usually enter JKK from the parking area, but today while I was on my way for the parking, I spotted this.

Thank you JKK for another Minimal Art Photograph.

As you can see from the composition, this Photograph is all about Lines and their interaction with a Small Pipe

Therefore I categorized this under Minimalism as Simple Geometry. (as lines dominate the frame).

A Black and White Minimal Art Photograph of Long Shadow of Railing Vs a Part of a Bicycle Tyre. 


I spotted the Long Shadow of the Railing first and then I included a part of the Bicycle Tyre to the bottom right of the frame, leaving a lot of negative space on the left. 

This ain't Parts of the Whole Minimalism (because of just the part of a Bicycle Tyre), but rather Minimalism as Less Elements

When I don't find subjects, I try and create newer ones from the elements available on the streets. 

This picture from Johari Bazaar, Jaipur, is an example of such a frame. I wish I could travel outside Jaipur, so that I can click newer shots with newer elements and backdrops. I have been shooting Minimalism in Jaipur for 5 years now. Somehow me travelling outside to shoot hasn't happened yet.
Hopefully Soon enough.

The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 50 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/4

  • Shutter Speed: 1/1600 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-100

  • Exposure bias: 0 step

  • Focal Length: 50 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Flash mode: No flash

  • Exposure program: Manual

  • White Balance: Auto

Hope you enjoyed the Railing Shadow Vs Bicycle Tyre Minimalist Photograph.


Thank you for your time. Have a Nice Day. !

On another Sunday while I visited Jawahar Kala Kendra, I visited a Design Exhibition held by INIFD, Pearl Academy Jaipur etc.

The Exhibition was on the first floor and there were sketches of Fashion-wear, some Paintings and even Photographs on the walls. They were also enrolling students for design courses.

Surprisingly, one girl approached me and asked me whether I was looking to get enrolled for a design course. Of course, I said No, but I was happy that she considered me young enough for it, aka probably a teenager ;) I am 37 by the way, now. Haha.

Anyways, While one my way back, I saw this Triangle being formed between the Side Rails of the Staircase that I was supposed to take on my way out.

I flipped the screen to the LCD view, Selected the Monochrome settings and Focused right on the White Triangle.


I took about 6-7 shots and about 5 minutes to finish shooting, as a lot of people were coming in the frame.

5 Minutes Later, I knew I had my Minimalism as Simple Geometry Photograph :)


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 50 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/4

  • Shutter Speed: 1/200 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-2500

  • Exposure bias: 0 step

  • Metering mode: Spot

This shot was taken somewhere near Ganpati Plaza, Jaipur. 


I went there to pick up a Flash Trigger, which was required for a professional photoshoot. 

I parked my Bike near the Famous "Gulab ji Chai wale" or Gulab ji Tea Stall and went for a walk with my Camera. 

I thought it would be a nice idea to check around for some Look Up Minimal Shots of the buildings. 

Near Neelam Hotel, Spotted this Broken Window Pane

I just took one shot for this. It is fun when you get your desired composition in the first try.

Also, as you can see, this is Minimalism as Simple Geometry

That Missing / Broken Window Pane Pops the otherwise Mundane Shot. 

The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 100 mm Prime Macro L Series Lens

  • F-stop: f/7.1

  • Shutter Speed: 1/1000 sec.

What we have here is:


"A Black and White Minimal Art Photograph of a Window with Horizontal Blinds, placed on a White Wall with Diagonal lines created by Light and Shadows."



What motivated me to shoot this as a Subject was primarily two factors:

1) The Lines created by Nature. 

2) How there were only a handful Horizontal Lines amongst the many Multiple Diagonal Lines. 


All that I had to do here was to punch in the right exposure settings in my Camera and leave some Negative /Empty space on the right hand side :)


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 50 mm Lens

  • F-stop: f/7.1

  • Shutter Speed: 1/320 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-100

  • Exposure bias: 0 step

  • Focal Length: 50 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Flash mode: No flash

  • Exposure program: Manual

  • White Balance: Auto

Hope you enjoyed the Diagonal Versus Horizontal Lines Minimalist Photograph.

A Black and White Looking Up Minimal Art Photo of Four Windows of a Building and Electricity Wires Overlapping them.


This shot was taken near Ganpati Plaza Jaipur, opposite to the Old Gulab Ji Tea Shop. 

This is Classic Minimalism with lots of Negative Space (empty space) on the right. 

Alternatively, one could argue that this is Minimalism as Parts of the Whole, but that is not my intention here and I personally would not categorize this as that kind of an Image. 

I can't explain why but it is kind of obvious that the intention here is more towards showing Less Elements and Negative Space than any other thing. That effort is clearly visible.


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 100 mm Lens

  • F-stop: f/7.1

  • Shutter Speed: 1/2000 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-400

  • Exposure bias: 0 step

  • Focal Length: 100 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Flash mode: No flash

  • Exposure program: Manual

  • White Balance: Auto

Hope you enjoyed the Four Windows and Wires Minimalist Photograph.
